  • Teacher’s Assistant Pro

    Name: Teacher's Assistant Pro 

    Developer: Lesson Portal

    Price: $7.99

    Compatibility: iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.3 or later.

    If you consistently drown in paperwork -- especially as report and parent conference season comes calling -- Teacher's Assistant Pro is a worthwhile investment to keep yourself organized. You can create student profiles to keep track of behaviour, achievements and infractions -- documenting incidents and reports, which can then be used for reference or emailed directly to parents and administrators via email. 

    Via: Apple App Store

  • Sand Timer

    Name: Sand Timer

    Developer: Smartphonewar

    Price: Free

    Compatibility: iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.0 or later.

    When you're maintaining a balance between teacher talking time and student activities, and have a number of tasks to plough through in an hour, sometimes lessons threaten to overrun or you may need to think on your feet to spend extra -- or less -- time explaining subjects. 

    Lessons are rarely completed to the exact times noted down in your plan, so why not use a free timer to try and keep things on track?

    Via: Apple App Store

  • Print Magic

    Name: Print Magic

    Developer: Wellala

    Price: $1.99

    Compatibility: iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 3.0 or later.

    Lesson plans and print off exercise sheets are part-and-parcel of being a teacher -- but sometimes, there is a queue for the staff room's PC, or you run out of time.

    If you have an app like Print Magic, then you can connect to Wi-Fi and wired printers in order to wirelessly print off what you need. You can print text, images, .pdf files (with an in-app purchase) and emails.
